## Percentages of Amounts – Using a Bar Model (A) worksheet description

Introduce your pupils to using bar models in order to calculate percentages of amounts with this worksheet. Bar models provide an excellent visual tool for understanding percentages and help bridge the gap between concrete, pictorial, and abstract concepts.

In Section A, learners are asked to shade given percentages on six different bar models. This is an important step as it leads to learners understanding where different percentages of amounts come from in bar models. Then in Section B, learners will find 10%, 70%, 40%, 5%, 35%, and 85% of different amounts using bar models. These models are already drawn for learners and are divided into sections representing multiples of 5 or 10, as required. Section C demonstrates another use for the bar model as learners will try to find the whole when provided with 10% of a number.
